SAN JOSE, Antique – The movie “Be the Change” of the Antique National School (ANS) students will represent Western Visayas to the national Consumer Welfare Month short film competition on the Sustainable Consumption category of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
DTI provincial information officer Lynna Joy Cardinal said the film, produced by ANS Grade 11 students under adviser Christine Cepeda, won the DTI regional competition last Sept. 23.
“The short film deals with the story that through small things we do like properly disposing our wastes, we can contribute to the preservation of our environment,” Cardinal said on Friday.
She called for the support of the public as the four-minute, 30 seconds film will compete with entries from other regions.
“Fifteen percent of the total score in the competition will depend on the number of ‘Likes’ of the video from (the social media) page so that we are really asking for the support of the consumers,” Cardinal said.
As part of the competition, the students and their adviser will face the judges for an interview on Oct. 23 in Manila. “The awarding will be held on Oct. 24 at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City,” she added.
Felisa Beriong, officer-in-charge of the Department of Education Office of the Schools Division Superintendent in the province, issued a memorandum last Oct. 14, calling for the support on the short film.
The voting period for the short film started last Oct. 7 and will end noontime of Oct 22.(With a report from PNA/PN)
